Teleconference: Pre-Dispute Arbitration Agreements in the Post-Concepcion World
Friday, May 20 04:00 AM GMT to 04:00 AM GMT
In a recent decision with broad implications for the use of pre-dispute arbitration agreements in a variety of contexts, the Supreme Court has held that courts cannot refuse to enforce an arbitration agreement that prohibits class actions. AT&T Mobility LLC v. Concepcion reflects the ongoing commitment of the Supreme Court to ensure that the Federal Arbitration Act (FAA) preempts state laws or court rulings that are perceived to present an obstacle to the enforcement of private parties mutual consent to arbitrate in accordance with the terms of their written agreements.
Paul Hastings presents this complimentary one-hour teleconference, as we discuss the breadth of the Concepcion decision and the steps employers should take as a consequence.
RSVP no later than 9:00 am PT, Wednesday, May 18 to Kristi Sadler at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1.213.683.5857. A confirmation with dial-in instructions will be emailed prior to the teleconference.
